simple tips for the new mama

I love being a mommy.  It is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it is so worthwhile.  One of the most overwhelming times for me was the first few weeks after Serenity's birth.  Being a new mom, learning my baby, figuring out nursing, plus healing from delivery (all while extremely sleep-deprived) was an incredible challenge.  I was recently asked if I have any tips for new moms and, while I'm sure this is nothing revolutionary, I've definitely learned a lot (through both bad and good experiences) from my early days with Rennie.  With how overwhelming to-do lists can be, I'm hoping to keep this as easy and practical as possible for my fellow mommies. ❤️

Baby HR Gender Reveal!

before and after the ultrasound!

One week ago, Andrew and I traveled through fog and rain to find out how our baby was doing and also to discover HR's gender!  Because our midwife lives two hours away and I also had a regular checkup along with a chiropractic appointment, it turned into an all-day affair.  What a fun time  for just the two of us to see and celebrate our new child!
